Funeral Ceremony

Funeral Ceremony

A funeral ceremony is a chance to celebrate, sanctify, or remember the life of a person who recently passed away. It’s all about a person’s life and being representative of their life and them as a person. Typically the ceremony comprises of a eulogy, reading of verses, memorable times, and beautiful music. Then the ceremony concludes with the words of the committal.

Planning a Funeral Ceremony

Planning this ceremony involves people weaving together special memories of a person to create a beautifully unique ceremony. First I will spend time with you finding out about the person. Then I will work with you to incorporate your individual requests. Where appropriate, I will offer suggestions for the structure and flow of the ceremony. This collaborative approach means your family or group get a personalised and heartfelt ceremony.

During this very emotional time, rest assured your family or group will receive any support needed from me.
